Recruiting & Retention. Is better described as…. GROWTH. What if we ran a factory?. 115 years old Produces a one-of-a-kind product Consumers may choose a similar product over ours – not everyone wants our product
Is better described as
the vindication of the cause for which (the Confederate soldier) fought the defense of (his) good name, the guardianship of his history, the emulation of his virtues, the perpetuation of those principles which he loved to see that the true history of the South is presented"
In other words we need to be more concerned about helping a man to honor his heritage than just pushing membership

I have enclosed a check in the amount of $40.00, made payable to the SCV for an initial membership in
the Friends of the SCV for which I will receive a membership certificate, lapel pin and a one year
subscription to the Confederate Veteran magazine which is published six times each year. I promise to
always conduct myself in a manner that will reflect positively on the Sons of Confederate Veterans, its
members, camps and divisions and especially the Confederate soldiers and sailors whose good names
and military service the organization honors by its very existence. Furthermore, I declare that I am not a
member of any anti-American or hate group such as the KKK, neo-Nazi or other White supremacy
organization, including groups whose objectives are contrary to the mission and purpose of the SCV as
described above and in official SCV literature.
(Signature of applicant) (Date)
The SCV General Headquarters (GHQ) will provide notice annually, beginning about one year after the initial
membership is processed, that a payment of $30.00 is required to maintain active membership in the Friends of the
SCV in order to continue the magazine subscription.
Often a product of the Supply-side
The aim of the Demand-side Recruiting
Both TARGET and BROADCAST are legitimate means to pursue GROWTH but BROADCAST RECRUITING will bring motivated workers (and those more likely to renew)
The best recruiting tool is a vibrant camp in an accessible location with consistent programs, organized and punctual meetings, a fraternal atmosphere and an outreach to the community.
GHQ can assist with lists
